It seems like the wait for the return of historical fantasy romance series "Reign" on The CW may take a bit longer than fans originally expected. Not only that, but it seems like the rumor mill is indicating that the fourth season of "Reign" may very well be the last for the series.

According to a report by Ecumenical News, word has been spreading that "Reign" may end with its fourth season on The CW after receiving low ratings during its third season on the network. This may disappoint fans who were already underwhelmed by the network's decision to shorten the season's number of episodes. While the first two seasons of "Reign" received 22 episodes each, season 3 fell down to 18 episodes and season 4 was marked with 16.

The producers of "Reign" may be keeping their hopes up for the future of the series on the CW, expecting at least one more season after season 4. However, given the state of the show, many have been wondering whether "Reign" will finally get axed after its fourth batch of episodes.

Meanwhile, as fans worry over the lifespan of "Reign," spoilers for the next season of the historical romance series indicates that it will stay as dark as it was during its third season. Christian Times reports that Mary the Queen of Scotland (Adelaide Kane) will be picking up the pieces of her adventures during the last season to return to her home in Scotland. However, will she make it back safe?

"We've got to find out if she goes back to Scotland," the President of The CW — Mark Pedowitz — teased during the Golden Globes.

As Mary returns to Scotland during the next season of "Reign," it seems like the rumor mill expects her to find several new suitors waiting, two of which are reportedly going to be her new husbands.

The fourth season of "Reign" is expected to premiere sometime in 2017.
